Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Check out the “Handmade” gifts section on Amazon

I especially like the “Handmade” gifts section. You can search by region or state. If you want to patronize artisans in your own area. As a former basket maker, painter, and crafter, I know how much it means to have orders – the difference between staying in business and giving up. Order directly from the artist provides you with unique gifts and the knowledge you are promoting the arts.

In the “Handmade” section, you can also shop by person, price, occasion, and type of gift, giving you lots of choices for any gifting occasion.
